Postdoctoral position in Berlin

The Hahn Meitner Institute Berlin invites applications for a postdoctoral position in the synthesis and characterization of transition metal oxides.

The successful candidate will hold a PhD in physics or chemistry and will have experience in both sample fabrication and scattering techniques (neutron or X-ray). A preference will be given to candidates that have a demonstrated experience and interest in the growth of transition metal oxide single crystals using an optical floating zone mirror furnace. The successful candidate will join an international team of scientists taking part in an active scientific program in transition metal oxides and will be involved in the set-up of a sample preparation laboratory, focused on the fabrication and characterization of transition metal oxides materials.

The candidate will be expected to be involved in both the fabrication and characterization of materials as well as devise and execute his/her own neutron or X-ray scattering experiments using facilities both inside and outside of HMI.

The Hahn Meitner Institut is a German National Laboratory and a member of the Hermann von Helmholtz Association of National Research Centres. It is located in Berlin, the capital of Germany, has about 850 employees and hosts the Berlin Neutron Scattering Center (BENSC), a user facility open to scientists from all over the world. To probe the structure and dynamics of solids and liquids, BENSC provides scientists with state-of-the-art neutron scattering instrumentation.
